Ste Marie aux Mines Mineral Show 2014
19 June 2014
Once again it is time for us to travel to the beautiful area of the Alsace in France. Every year the Team from Crystal Classics is excited to set up at this show in the usually quiet and sleepy town of Ste Marie aux Mines.
Mineral & Gem
26 – 29 June 2014
Every year at the end of June this town bursts into life with the “Mineral & Gem à Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines”. Exhibitors from all over the world set up their booths - either in the prestige Theatre, outside in one of the tents or one of the big exhibition halls.
Crystal Classics will have it's booth as usual in the Theatre. We have a main booth with 6 cabinets right in front of the stage, filled with the best specimens from the newly acquired collections.
We have the biggest booth in the Theatre at the Ste Marie aux Mines Mineral and Gem show.

Don't forget if you have a collection, single specimens or a new find of good quality minerals to show us - please come to our booth in the Theatre and ask for Ian Bruce or Diana Schlegel. Our booth is located at the end of the Theatre right by the stage. We are instant cash buyers and always interested to see specimens from world wide localities.
We pay the highest price for single specimens and collections worldwide.
This year we are bringing some fantastic new specimens. From fine display pieces to rarities - we have it all. We will have fine Alabandites from the Merelani Hills in Tanzania.
